It was a long time since she felt really well. The disease in her body dominated her days and consumed her mind. She tried to function as well as she could, but ultimately, her sickness limited her. The constant loss of blood left her body weak and exhausted. Living with hormones that never balanced themselves affected her mind and emotions. Because Jewish culture deemed women who were menstruating “unclean”, she had to live with that stigma. Her illness was int
One thing I've learned from my experience as an angry woman is that you can't overcome your anger until you get to the root of the problem and figure out exactly why you are so angry.

It was my second round of the “flu” in three weeks. Even though I didn’t share the first round with my brother, when he did catch a different strain 10 days later, he passed it on to me. It. Was. Awful.
Coughing, sneezing, chills and fevers dominated our house. Jamie and I spent the weekend resting on opposite sofas each possessing our own tissue box and garbage bag filled with dirty tissues. Not the way I planned to spend our one weekend off from Mantour travel.
Sometimes we are under the impression that serving God will be great, care-free and easy all of our lives. This was not the case with Mary, Jesus’ mother. She was the woman in the Bible who knew Jesus, yet had a hard life because He was in her life. She was a teenager when God called her to be a part of His plan. She willingly accepted because she loved God and was devoted to Him. According to Jewish law an unwed mother was to be killed. But God protected her and that
So anyone who has seen a recent picture of me may have noticed that I’m looking a little different. After the great haircut massacre of May 2017, I decided that it is time to start wearing my hair a little longer. Right now, we are in the “growing out” stage, and yes, I am aware that it isn’t necessarily pretty.
I mean, it’s not that I’m not trying—-and if you’ve seen a picture, it was taken on a day where I tried really hard to manage what I can only describe now as an
The first step to experiencing freedom from anger is taking responsibility for your anger.

Over the years, single women have gotten a reputation for being the Debbie Downer of Valentine’s Day. What are some practical steps each of us can take to turn that reputation around? 1. Choose to wear red. Not just on Valentine’s Day, but even in the two weeks leading up to it, I try to wear red as much as possible to celebrate the season. I’ve found that over the years it doesn’t just send the message that it’s okay to celebrate Valentine’s Day around a single gal,

She was just about to spill it….all the juicy details of the whole situation. Being completely human, I really wanted to hear about what happened. My curious side was waiting on the edge of my seat as the latest scoop was about to be divulged. (Hey, just keeping it real here) But then the Holy Spirit inside prompted me, “This isn’t right”. “I KNOW!!!” I inwardly thought, a little disappointed and annoyed that I had to do the right thing. And then like I turn the steering w
It was first thing in the morning. Even though I knew it was time to get up the crisp cold air in the room was begging me to stay under the covers. Using prayer as an excuse, I started talking to Jesus about several of the challenges that were facing me that week. (It had the potential to be a doozy!!) Soon I was praying, “Help me to get through this challenge” “Help me get through this event” “Oh Jesus, please help me get through this issue.” And then I heard myself. Mor
